We have used Rod before to service our vehicle, honestly we would book no other individual than Rodney. As a matter of fact, on this last service we chose to wait a few days longer just so he could do the services himself. Rodney is a 5-star mechanic and individual. If we could rate him a 10, we would!

Really great service, gave me options, was on time, considerate, seems like a happy, easy going guy. Sings to himself when he works, which I thought was great.

I was notified in advance that Rodney was on his way. He showed up about 5 minutes early which is a plus for me. We reviewed what was happening with the vehicle then Rodney went to work and did the inspection. When he was finished he went over the problems he discovered and what he recommended. He answered all my questions in language I could understand. He is a great professional to work with.

Rodney was on time, knew what he was doing and finished the job quickly. He was nice enough to let me know of future problems on the car to take care down the road- that's service! Thanks Rodney!

Rodney was punctual to the appointment and worked very quickly. He was friendly and I could tell he knew what he was doing. I will use Rodney next time I have an issue with one of my cars.

Rodney was punctual for a 7 am appointment and very friendly. He was quick and gave me all the info I need about my car. It was so wonderful to have my coffee and be cozy in my house on a Saturday morning and check off a chore at the same time. He will be my car for the next thing I need.

Rodney fixes all my problems. He would not give up until he found the complication that ignites my SES light, and then fixed the main trouble. I admire his effort and honesty. What an expert.

Rodney showed up 15 minutes early for the scheduled appointment and did the starter install in less time than was quoted. He emailed me a detailed report of a complete evaluation of my car including some leaking gaskets I was not aware of. There was a complete estimate included with pricing for the recommended work. I plan on having the recommend work done shortly and I would recommend Rodney and Your Mechanic to everyone with repairs to be done.

Rodney was professional, on time and very thorough. He pointed out other concerns that he noticed while he was doing his assigned tasks. Rodney took the time to explain the procedures, what was needed and how to view his online report.

Rodney was the most wonderful mechanic. He was on time and thorough. I thought I needed a new starter. Turns out I didn't. Rodney gave my truck a full inspection and found the issue as well as giving some recommendations. I will definitely be booking him in the future!


on October 26

On time, friendly, knowledgeable. Went the extra mile when he found that he had the wrong part and worked hard to go get the right one on a Sunday morning!

Rodney was beyond professional. Extremely knowledgeable and got the job done right the first time and in a timely manor. I plan on requesting Rodney to come back soon for some other work that our car needs. Thank you Rodney for fixing our current car issues. Please reward Rodney for his hard word and professionalism. A+++ Thank you again! See you soon.

This is my 2nd time having Rodney as my mechanic and once again Rodney nailed it! Rodney is polite fast safe and extremely knowledgeable about what he is doing and got the job done right quickly and professionally as always! I do believe that Rodney is the BEST MECHANIC I ever had and if your looking to get the job done right the first time then book Rodney for your next car repair and know that when Rodneys done your car will be fixed right and that's a whole lot of piece of mind. Thanks again Rodney! A++++++ Give this man a raise!!! See you soon for my next auto repair.

Rodney was very prompt, courteous, professional and knowledgeable. He explained what the problems were, showed me the damaged parts, and completed the repairs quicker than planned.

This was my first time using a at home service for my car , after reading the comments from other customers I decided to give it a try , and oh my gosh I was totally shocked by the professionalism that Rodney provided he showed up early which I was fine with cause I am a tickler for being on time and on time he was , so that was a big check mark , professionally dressed with company logo uniform . Not only did he find out the problem with my car but also did a inspection of the entire car , let me know that my tires were low and recommended that as soon as i get it running go and get them inflated and told me what pressure for front and the rear . So yes I was very happy with Rodney and the service he provided and the overall attention of the company putting customers first . Looking forward to seeing Rodney next week for the repairs .


on July 26

Rodney was on time and completed the work in less than three hours. He replaced the A/C condenser and clutch. He also pointed out that I would need to replace the alternator in the future (I did). He is friendly and does great work. Very professional.

Excellent experience with Rodney. Not only was he on time and efficient at changing all four brake pads on my wife's car, he took the time to explain to my sons how the brakes worked and what the different parts that controlled the brakes. The highlight for them was when he let them "help" with lifting up the tire and tightening the lug nuts. Thank you for your exceptional work. I will definitely use Rodney and YourMechanic again.

Rodney was amazing to work with! On time & quick with the repairs. Recommended services needed to ensure my car was ready to go. Overall a great experience!

Booked Rodney as my 1st ever mobile mechanic .. But was called off to work in the middle of the night. Have some 18 & 19yo at home , so left them (reluctantly) in charge . Rodney showed up 30 min early , made a thorough inspection , documented everything in HD photos for an email report , and mede a series of photos when replacing the Starter as well. Everything exactly as quoted. What he found during nthe the inspection wasn't surprising , and he forwarded a Work order to me which showed how much it would take to replace the engine bracket when I was ready to. Great experience, well and quickly done.

Took my car to a service chain for oil change and tire rotation, after service was completed, mechanic said he noticed I needed a new valve cover gasket.... for $625!! Went home and found YOURMECHANIC.COM. Free quotes online, book your appointment and they send a certified mechanic with a 1year/12,000 mile warranty on their work...to your home!! Rodney showed up on time, got right down to work and finished when he said he would. While he was here, I cleaned house a little, read a book and took a nap. Twenty minutes after I woke up, Rodney finished the job. I got the valve cover gasket, front and rear shock absorbers for $510...for 3 jobs...$115 less than the 1 job the chain quoted!!! Unbelievable!! I will only be using this service from now on. And, if available, Rodney too.

Rodney is nothing short of outstanding. He's professional, courteous, and extremely knowledgable. I would not hesitate to recommend him. I'll be contacting him for all my future automotive needs.

Very dependable and showed up 10 minutes early. He followed the proper procedure to diagnose my car and was very knowledgeable with his 27 years of experience working on cars. I wouldn't want any other mechanic working on my car than Rodney!

Rodney is very honest and very polite . Arrives early to his appointment. Fast and recommends you services that need attention in the future. Will definitely recommed him.

Rodney was very prompt, courteous, professional and knowledgeable. He explained what the problems were, showed me the damaged parts, and completed the repairs quicker than planned. I've had him work on my car multiple times now and have yet to have a complaint.

No surprises, Rodney let us know exactly what needed to be done and provided an exact quote. He arrives early for the appointment and did an excellent job.

A plus service! After going through the ringer with other shops I decided to try this and it's so much easier ! Very convenient and less stressful experience ! Doesn't pile on a bunch of overwhelming expenses right away! Honest and trust worthy !! Does very good work !

Rodney provided thorough, efficient, and expert input on an inspection visit for my vehicle. He walked through each step of his assessment, discussed a lower-cost phased approach for addressing my issue, and helped me decide which next steps I would like to pursue. He was personable and professional, and I look forward to working with him again!

was able to come in a hour earlier then scheduled, very professional and courteous and was able to finish ahead a schedule. also recommend other services he noticed I needed to take care of. would definitely recommend to others.

Instead of waiting for hours at a dealership, I brought the professional to my garage instead. Rodney was on time and exceptional. He tore my car apart and put it all back together while I sat inside in my recliner watching a baseball game. He fixed or replaced everything I had asked for at the price they had quoted me before I had finalized the appointment. There were no surprises or cost changes. He found things that would need attention in the future, pointed them out, explained each problem, and provided me the cost for each possible future repair. He didn't leave any mess behind and was very personable.
